CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago reclaimed the overall NHL lead and sent Los Angeles to its first three-game skid of the season by beating the Kings 1-0 on Monday, with goaltender Antti Raanta making 26 saves in his first NHL shutout.

In the day's other games, Philadelphia scored in the final minute then beat Vancouver in a shootout, Ottawa made it rare back-to-back wins by defeating Washington, and Nashville prevailed in a ten-goal game against Detroit.

Chicago's Brandon Saad scored the sole goal in the first period for the Blackhawks who relied upon Raanta and their defense for the victory.

Raanta bounced back from one of his worst performances, in which he allowed two late goals in the shootout loss at St. Louis on Saturday.

The Kings are on their first three-game slide since dropping the opening three games of last season.

Philadelphia's Vinny Lecavalier scored the only goal in the shootout as the Flyers escaped with a 4-3 win over Vancouver.

Lecavalier scored on Philadelphia's first shootout attempt, and Steve Mason stopped all three shooters as the Flyers earned their third straight win.

Mark Streit, Claude Giroux and Brayden Schenn also scored in regulation for Philadelphia, which has not lost at Vancouver since 1989.

Tom Sestito, Jannik Hansen and Daniel Sedin scored for the Canucks.

Ottawa won a third-straight home game for the first time this season, downing Washington 3-1.

Nashville's Colin Wilson had two goals and an assist to lead the Predators to a 6-4 victory over Detroit.
